BRYDEN WILLIAMS
China is Real

To see work scroll to the right

Artist Bryden Williams headed to China to partake in the first arts residency of the $100,000 10 year arts initiative, the Chippendale New World Art Prize. As a result of his eye opening artist residency in Bejing, Williams brings CHINA IS REAL to NG Art Gallery in Chippendale.

The exhibition consists of new media sculptures and non-narrative videos filmed and created in Beijing, China. The role of drinking water and pollution in Beijing is addressed in a series of sculptures created using water filter jugs. The video works vary from site-specific locational interventions and footage filmed in the provinces of Hubei, Sichuan and Chongqing.

 


Brydens work integrates various multimedia sculptures and moving image works to create a simulated luminescent experience that explore the roles of both natural and artificial light in a technologically saturated environment. It explores the relationship between our primal roots and our modern constructed reality by encapsulating the CNWAP's 2013 theme of 'Revitalisation' and 'Creating a New World' through the investigation of primal infatuations and our dependence on fire and means of progress.

Winning artist, Bryden Williams invites his audience to reflect on our evolution towards the technologically facilitated world we live in today.

 

The opening night will take place at NG Art Gallery on the 11th of February from 6-8pm.
